So much bias.
Why being so much biased against bias?
Bias is useful after all!
It helps you concentrate to the things you want. Otherwise you would be lost in an ocean of information. It allows you to test your beliefs. Otherwise you would roam around the data without a specific purpose. It allows you to categorize things. Otherwise you would be so open none that everything would look the same…
Without bias there is nothing.
Not even bias!
